The ground is giving away beneath me
Worms are feasting on my feet
Soon enough you'll find
Another place to sink your teeth

Something tells me I'm far from dead
I can still feel them gnawing at the meat
You can preach all you want
But if there's one thing I'm sure of,
They couldn't have paid me enough
To believe a single word

If there is a god
If there is a god

Stick the stake in,
Hold up my hands,
And welcome me onto it
We've been the best of friends

If there is a god
If there is a god

He rejected us
Once he saw what we were capable of
Fasten your hands if you want

Are you proud of what you have created?
Another dead and useless,
Faithless and vacant
Will not willingly sell my soul
To feel anything more
But that's what got me here before

I will harness the finest
Bury your shroud
It's a shame I won't be remanded
There is no grave deep enough
For low lifes like me
(There is no grave, there is no grave)
(There is no grave deep enough)

All my god damns got me nowhere
All my god damns got me...

He'll take my head apart,
Examine it carefully
So there won't be others like me

Are you proud of what you have created?
Another dead and useless,
Faithless and vacant
Will not willingly sell my soul
To feel anything more
But that's what got me here before

Are you proud?
Have I made you proud?
Are you proud of me now?

I am all I am
I am all I am
I am all I am
'Cause they never
'Cause they never loved me
